    The settings should be in ~/.fluxbox/init. Look for a line that says some stuff followed by toolbar.alpha: and a number. For the slit, it's probably slit.alpha:

    Just play around, you'll find it. Also, I think it's somewhere in the menu.

    Yea I've been working on the transparency problem for quite a while now, and it's still unsolved. I've set everything the fluxbox/init file to alpha 140. I've also gone through the fluxbox config menu and ensured they were all 140. This seems to be my problem: it's not my slit that needs to be transparent, it's my iconbar. Everything on the bottom bar is transparent except for my iconbar (where icons are minimized to.) The really weird part is that if there is an app shown on the iconbar, it is transparent, both minimized and maximized. It's only when there's nothing there that the bar is solid. I've been talking in the #fluxbox channel, and they said this was a bug in the old version, but since I have the newest version available it shouldn't be a problem. So I'm quite confused about the issue.

    Hey sorry I can't help you but you did you get Conky to tell you the time it is? I would love to do the same thing!

    I sure did, here's the code:
    Code:
    ${color #CCCCCC}${time %a.%b.%d}
    ${color #CCCCCC}${time %H.%M.%S}
    Here's what it looks like:
    Tue.June.06 (<-date)
    01.52.37 (<-time)
